Red Carpet Fashion: Academy Awards 2013

I'm still getting over how boring last night's Oscar telecast was... and how even more boring the red carpet was. *yawn* Did you guys feel the same? This recap will be short & sweet.. as I'm sure you've already seen most of these gowns...

Jessica Chastain finally got it all right! A gorgeous glittering goldish-copper custom Giorgio Armani gown was the perfect choice to top off her Jessica Rabbit look. Simple hair, lots of diamonds and red lips are just the icing on the cake. L.O.V.E.

Stacy Keibler has all the luck. She's got the body, the man & now access to every hot dress on the planet. I am AHB-sessing over this beaded Naeem Khan art-deco inspired gown. I mean she is a stunner and will look amazing in anything but this couldn't be a more fabulous choice.

Thank you Kerry Washington for bringing some color to this red carpet! In a sea of gunmetal, black, white & light colored dresses, Kerry donned a beautiful coral-pink-red Miu Miu design. I think my favorite part is that crystal jeweled bodice. Such a bright burst of fresh air.

Naomi Watts has been knocking it out of the park this whole season. I was literally gushing over her beaded asymmetrical Armani Privé dress. I adore the unique neckline and that it has this futuristic vibe going on. This is the kind of updo that I always try to do myself, but ends up as an epic fail. She's the total package that one!

If anyone can chop her hair off and still look like a beautiful movie star, it would be Charlize Theron. Donning her new cropped cut (which she said was "completely freeing") she looked a statuesque goddess in her Dior Haute Couture white gown. I love the structured peplum with the crystal rhinestone detail. It would probably be an otherwise boring dress without those details. Lovely!
 
What did you guys think? Were you as bored with the Oscars as I was? What dresses did you like? Anyone I left off this list? Let me know! :) Happy Monday! xoxo

  2. Love these selections, but overall, I thought the carpet was a little lackluster myself!

  3. Totes feel you on the bore! I tried making it more exciting which eventually failed... really love Naomi though - the fact that she wore this and she had worn that Erdem outfit at the other award show .. she is so unique as well! Another one of my favs was Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille!

  4. Thanks for callin' it like ya see it, Nikki! Cause that's how I saw it too. I was totally underwhelmed by the fashion showing at last night's event. Usually I can narrow it down to 3-4 faves. And the one dress I found interesting (the one Anne Hathaway wore to present) has hardly received any press. Sigh...

  7. I agree, it was a totally boring Oscar show...
    I was however swooning over Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watt's gowns. Jessica just got the whole look down and looks completely stunning and Naomi's dress has such a fun cutout and I love the sequins with the fitted shape.
